In addition, industrial environments and conditions place further demands on marking and labelling solutions.
The label material must guarantee long term use and legibility. In many of today’s industrial settings labels must be resistant to chemicals in harsh solvents, oils, UV lighting and extreme weather conditions.
The problems of how to re-label wires and cables that have connectors at either end has been a long-term issue for electrical engineers. Many cable label sleeves must be inserted onto the cable end meaning removing the connector, sliding on the label and reconnecting – far too time-consuming for replacing old labels. Alternatively, new labels can be attached using fiddly cable ties, however again this can be impossible for retrospective label attachment and incredibly time consuming.
Murrplastik offers a range of label plates and marking solutions that enable quick and easy retrospective labelling of cables and wires. Not only are the label plates easy to securely fit directly onto the cables, they are also directly printed to your requirements using Murrplastik labelling system software – extinguishing the need to feed fiddly labels into label sleeves.
Material characteristics and specifications: KNC, KNQ AND KSM
KNC, KNQ and KSM are offered in polycarbonate, as well as KSM in polypropylene and a detectable polypropylene variant. Due to its chemical resistance, the latter is particularly suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industry. All materials are extremely durable and highly resistant to environmental influences and mechanical stress.
The application temperatures of KNC, KNQ and KSM made of polycarbonate are between -40°C and +140°C. They are made in compliance with the highest fire protection class V0 according to UL 94. The application temperature of the plates made of polypropylene are between -30°C and +90°C. Here the fire protection class HB according to UL94 is fulfilled.
